CRISIS REACHED IN LABOR TROUBLE
Demonstration of Force Shown When Men are at Work on First Avenue
Yesterday Leads to Use of Firearms---Situation Under Chief
Vickers is Now Quiet-Many to Stand Trial for
Taking Part in Outbreak-Work
Proceeding Today.
The labor trouble which has been
festering here between'the contractors and tlie men with respect to
work on the street grading, reached
a crisis yesterday afternoon when, in
an attempt to rush upon men engaged in-the cut on First avenue,
which is under contract to Mclnnes
and Kelly, guns were used and several received wounds. One man, a
Montenegrin, Milan Nicheedich, lies
In the hospital in a serious condition,
having, been shot in Ihe abdomen.
He is attended by Dr. Eggert and
while little hopes were held out for
his recovery last night, his condition is improving and there are now
more favorable indications that he
may recover.
It has been feared for some time
that under the conditions of affairs
prevailing there was danger of some
overt act being committed which
would precipitate serious trouble.
The chief of police, W. H. Vickers,
has shown that he had the situation
we'l in hand and his course will
meet with general favor.
.Mayor's Statement
Mayor Manson when seen this
morning, said that since Chief Vickers took charge of tbe police force
on March 24, the situation lias been
in his hands. As mayor of the city
he felt every confidence 'In the
chief's ability and the commissioners had given him a free hand.
The way in which be handled the
situation yesterday showed that lie
Was capable and the confidence of
the authorities was well placed. The
authorities, the mayor added, were
ready to furnish Chief Vickers with
anything he may requesht to enable
LAID FOUNDATION
Canadian Fish and Cold Storage Company
Renew Work Upon Its
Structure.
Citizens Gather to Witness the First
Steps Towards Rearing Walls
of Gigantic Structure
On Tuesday afternoon the formal
ceremony connected with the starting of the building of tlie Canadian
Fish and Cold .Storage Company's
gigantic works at Seal Cove, took
place. The operation might be
called the laying of the cornerstone
although in these days of reinforced
concrete, no actual stone is put in
place. In Its place a barrow of concrete was dumped into place.
In view of the fact that Ihe works
will mean so much to tbe city, the
mayor, William Manson, was asked
to perform the act of dumping the
first barrow of concrete. Quite a
party from the city went out by
launch as the guests of (J. L. Clayton, who has charge of the work of
construction, and saw that the
foundation was truly started. Among
those present, besides the mayor,
were Aid. Kirkpatrick, Aid. Newton,
A.Carss, G. E. McLaughlin, J. Piercy,
C. D. Newton, Thos. Dunn, Frank
Mobley, H. P. Wilson, manager of
the Royal Bank, J. M. Christie, manager of the Bank of Commerce, A. T.
Broderick, manager of the Union
Bank, W. W. Gollin, or California,
who is interested in Prince Rupert,
and a number of otherB.
The cold storage establishment
has been described at length in
these columns before this time. As
has before been stated, it will be the
largest works of its kind in the
world.
The fact that the foundations are
now laid does not indicate that work
is just about to begin. A great deal
has been done In the way of building
wharves and getting ready for the
actual work of rearing the walls.
The company has a quarry at Port
Simpson from which it is drawing a
supply of granite to be used In the
him to see that law and    order    is
maintained,
Mas Free Hand
The chief is further empowered,
be says, to road the riot act whenever an emergency arises In which
he thinks it advisable so to do or if
he sees fit he may call upon the
mayor or the magistrate to do it.
This power has all been relegated to
the chief and he has pursued the
course he thinks best to follow in the
interests  of  law  and   order.
The mayor gives great credit to
tlie chief and his officers for tho
prompt and efficient manner in
which they performed their duties
yesterday. The readiness of so
many citizens who volunteered to assist the chief is greatly appreciated
also.
His Worship in no uncertain way
has given  it to be  understood  that
Chief Vickers is to have the fullest
power given him to enforce law.
Start Trouble
The trouble yesterday arose when
a party of men began work in Kelly's
cut on First avenue at the rate of
•17% cents. Chief Vickers personally, assisted by a force drawn from
the regular police and specials, went
on duty to see that nothing wns
done to interfere with the men. A
few of those on strike gathered
about in the morning l«rt little was
done that could be objected to.
A. O. Morse, who is secretary of
the Industrial workers, later waited
upon'Mayor Manson and requested
that the police by* withdrawn from
the cm. His Worship informed him
that the chief was empowered to see
that law and order was maintained
and Chief Vickers would not be interfered with in carrying out What
lie thought was best In the maintain,
ing of order. *
Tie l"p Thiii»s
Mr. Morse then threatened that,
unless such a course were taken
they would "tie things up" and mentioned a general strike which he did
not want to see and asked if the
mayor could not do something.
He was informed by Mr. Manson
that he (Mr. Manson) had done Ills
best to bring the two sides togetlfer
but that they could not agree to do
so.
Air. Morse suggested another attempt and His Worship agreed to
see if anything could be done.
Tlie result of His Worship's move
was that he found that the contractors could see no good purpose in
meeting, but they expressed a willingness to stand by the proposition
made of submitting to arbitration,
the work to proceed In the meantime
at 371,£  cents pending a settlement.
This information was conveyed to
Mr.  Morse.

Shortly after ,noon the workmen
In force marched from their hall on

FERNIE,  April     7.—Within     ten
days an arbitration board will be sitting here, which  will not be at the
request of the men either.
Whether .the arbitration hoard
will deal with the operators' association or whether the Crows Nest Pass
Company will try to reach an agreement is a matter of conjecture.
It is probable the whole of those
operators in the association will follow suit and a thousand men will

HOTEL AT EDMONTON
G. T. P. Will Build a Structure Costing About Three-Quarters
of a Million Dollars
PRAIRIE VISITORS ARE IMPRESSED
Lieutenant Governor Brown and Premier Scott of Saskatchewan Pay
Visit to Prince Rupert---^how Deep Interest in Place and
Speak of the Great Future Which the Port Has---
Official Welcome Extended by Mayor
Manson to the Party.
A $750,000 hotel of the most modern type will be erected by the Grand
Trunk Pacific in Edmonton within
the near future. The structure will
go up on the Grand View hotel property, on which the railway company
have an option till May.
This was the announcement made,
following a conference recently between W. P. Hinton, general passenger agent of the railway, D'Arcy
Tate, general solicitor of the railway, and the city council, at which
the railway officials asked for certain concessions from the city for
the new hotel.
The total value of the property is
about 5125,000. The hotel will be
the most modern in the west, and
will cater to the very highest class
of trade. The site selected is the
most ideal for tlie purpose In the
city.
The Grand Trunk Pacific will
have a union staiou with the Canadian Northern in Edmonton. It has
been practically agreed upon between the two roads.
mains in the body. He was hit below the right lung, the bullet taking
a course downward Into the abdomen. There are. hopes now that he
will recover. He is a Montenegrin,
about 27 years of age, who has been
here about two weeks. He has a
brother here also.
Plucky Action
In the cut William Lynch distinguished himself by the plucky fight
he put up with the specials. While
rocks were hurled at him from all
directions he stood his ground- and
escaped     unhurt. His     revolver
proved a tricky one, which may account for some of the assailants
escaping with their lives. .
"Bill" Casey, the well-known surveyor, took a prominent part in the
fight and was shot in the right hand,
his index finger being probably destroyed.. Sergeant Phillipson, in
spite of the fact that lie received a

rock, never gave up but made good

The men were admonished to quit
work at once nnd in preference to
force being used they stopped nnild
the applause of tho parade. After
the city men on Third avenue below
McBride had been tnken off, the
parade proceeded up First avenue
and Second avenue, where others
were taken off, even those engaged
in excavating for a private building.
Reaching Kelly's cut they, were
stopped by the police but immediately rocks were thrown. The small
police force together with specials
and citzens who were on the spot,
began a vigorous fight in which It
became necessary to use firearms.
In the absence of revolvers pickaxe
handles were brought Into use and
for a few minutes a desperate combat was kept up.
Stood Their Ground
In the end the striking forces retired, while the police made arrests
of a number. It was during this
fight that Milan Nlchcedlck was shot
in the abdomen as he was rushing
down upon the cut. He was shot at
short range the ball hitting his suspender buckle and carrying a part of
It Into the wound. This was taken
out by  the doctor but the ball  re-
torce behaved admirably.
Hall   lias   Been  Sealed
Following ihe outbreak in the afternoon, Mayor Manson ordered that
Ihe hall from which the men had
marched previous to committing a
breach of the law, should be closed.
Last evening the police nailed the
Industrial hall up and wil. see that
it remains closed.
The citzens became thoroughly
aroused as a result of the outbreak
yesterday, and last evening Chief
Vickers was inundated with applications to serve in any capacity lie
wished them. A strong force of specials was sworn in and all night long
arrests of men suspicious to the police followed. By midnight over 45
men were in the lockup and arrests
are still continuing today.
The mayor authorized the construction of a lockup on the government grounds last evening to meet
the needs as reported to him by the
chief. A start was made during the
night and today a strong building,
twenty feet by thirty feet with ten
cells to being rushed up.
Citizens  Rally
,   Last evening a meeting of citizens
assembled In the court house by mu
tual agreement. The place was
crowded and all could not get in. It
was proposed to adjourn to the gymnasium of the Kaien Island Club,
which was placed at the service of
the meeting, but in view of the urgency of quick action it was decided
to remain and hurry the business
through.
Thos. Dunn was elected chairman
and 0. H. Nelson secretary. After a
short Bpeech by the chairman, in
which he deplored the spectacle that
had been presented that day, a few
short speeches were given by Alex
Prudhomme, 0. II. Nelson and others.
Finally, on motion of Mr. Prud-
lionime and J. H. Rogers, it was decided that the citizens present go on
record as being prepared to serve
under Chief Vickers in any capacity
lie  might  wish   them   to  serve.
Chief Vickers was called up and
acquainted with the fact and the
nniiies of many were taken and handed lo tlie chief to he used as he saw
tit
All Is Quiet
All arrests made after tlie fight
submitted peacefully ind the men
under suspicion will have to stand
trial,
This afternoon the prisoners are
heing Identified and Informations
being formally laid. Among those
anesled are A. O. Morse, secretary,
and VV. Fraser. The preliminary
hearings will begin tomorrow.
As far as the Introduction of force
is concerned there has been none today. No attempt has been made to
interfere with anyone who has gone
to work and the situation is well in
hand by the police.
A large number of men left the
city by different steamers today and
will seek work elsewhere. All last
night volunteers from among the
citizens, including a number of the
members of Earl Grey's Rifles, who
volunteered Individually to do what
they could, did service during the
night in patrolling the streets to see
that order was maintained.
This morning in the police court
M. Boscovltch, charged with assault
upon a woman a wek ago, was committed for trial. He will be sent
south.
When the Grand Trunk. Pacific
steamer Prince Rupert came alongside the wharf on Wednesday forenoon, there were on the bridge, Captain C. H. Nicholson, the manager of
the company's coasting service! Hon.
G. W. Brown, the lieutenant-governor of Saskatchewan; lion. Walter
.Scott, premier of the province
named, and J. Young, president of
tlie Regina hoard of Trade. The
three last named were the guests of
the Grand Trunk Pacific ou this trip,
haying been persuaded by Captain
Nicholson to make tlie trip along the
coast before returning to their
homes.
The visitors are now glad that
they embraced the opportunity. It
is the first time any one of them
has made the run nortli of Vancouver, although*Mr. Scott has frequently
visited the Pacific coast. All are
delighted with the voyage and state
that lie will return on the least excuse offering, as they have enjoyed
every hour of the time spent on the
trip.
Members of Party
Probably the best known of the
group is Hon. Walter Scott, the energetic premier of Saskatchewan, who
has held office ever since the organization of the province. Mr. Scott
is an exceedingly practical man, due,
not doubt, in large measure to the
fact that lie has been brought into
close touch with all sides of life in
his experience as a newspaper man.
His Honor, Lieutenant-Governor
Brown, is a typical prairie man. He
can talk by the hour it bout "whea
and all that goes with it. . He is very
proud of his province and undoubtedly thinks it the brightest portion
of the great Dominion. He can give
you figures to show that in wheat,
in oats, in cattle and in flax, Saskatchewan is the banner producer.
Mr. Young is an observant business man and ready to learn all that
can he learned on this trip to tlie
coast.
Upon arrival the parly made a
tour about the city, taking in the
points of interest and getting a view
of the site from the Acropolis Hill.
In the afternoon^ under the guidance of several of the members of
the Liberal Association, they were
taken out in tlie Dominion Government launch Evelyn and shown the
harbor at close range. They were
shown what the Dominion Government was doing on Digby Island and
also taken around by the Canadian
Fish and -Cold Storage Company's
works and the inside : assages.
Welcomed by Mayor
In the evening .Mayor Manson took
occasion to visit the party on board
the Prince Rupert and extend to
them a hearty welcome to the city.
His Worship expressed the pleasure
be had in welcoming such a distinguished party from one of the sister
provinces. He acknowledged that as
the Hiy was only in the making they
could not show iheiii the place in
the same enviable light he could
hope Ice do in a few .veins' time
Hon.   Mr.   Scott,   replying,   said   lie
appreciated tbe welcome from the
mayor and said he and the others
of the party were exceedingly glad
to  visit   the  place.     They  had     been
persuaded by Captain Nicholson to
'oino and I hey were exceedingly glad
now that they did it. They had seen
enough of the city and knew enough
of tlie future trade to realize that in
twenty-five years or in ten years
or even in five years, Prince Ruperl
would present a very different appearance  to   what  it  did   now.
Later in tlte evening a number of
citizens called upon the party on
hoard the steamer,
Canadian chili's Move
Dr. Clayton and others representing the Canadian Club, endeavored
to have his Honor, Mr. Scott, nnd
Mr.  Young address    the    Canadian
expense involved in putting the .
streets in shape here. He, however,
pointed out thai the overcoming of
such difficulties was not altogether
a disadvantage. It had a tendency
to strengthen a people and prepare
them for further difficulties. He
had seen enough of the townsite to
satisfy himself that It would be a
very picturesque one and at the same
lime a very excellent, one from the
business standpoint.
The harbor also appealed very
strongly to .Mr. Scoit. It was a mag-,
nificent one and with the immense
trade that must come to tbe city
this was of inestimable advantage.
Hon. Mr. Brown had been very
similarly impressed with the city
ind the harbor. As a plainsman he
alluded lo there heing far more harbor accommodation than could ever
be used.
He said that there was sometimes
a mistake made In thinking of
Prince Rupert as being a harbor for
northern British Columbia. It was
tar more than that. It was the harbor, the means of outlet for north-'
ern Canada. The rich prairies of
the nortli would all be feeders to this
port so that the future was difficult
to overestimate.
Wide   Field   to   Draw   from
The Grand Trunk Pacific was busy
building feeders on the prairies, so
that by the time the through line
was built to Prince Rupert there
would be a tremendous territory
brought into tough with this port.
The prairies and the coast were supplementary lo one another. Men
came from the jirairle provinces to
live on the coast but on the other
hand  there were those who    found

ACROSS   ATLANTIC
Building New Airships Designed to Establish Route Over
Ocean.
German    Inventor   Has    tin-    Latest
Model Wliicb Is Expected lo
Enter Trade
Another attempt is to be made to
cross tlie Atlantic in an airship. This
time it is a German, Joseph Brttcker,
who Is to make the flight. His ship
is nearly ready, and as soon as all
preparations have been made will
start from tlte Cape de Verde Islands.
The principal difficulty at present
is that one of the two motors is not
working quite smoothly, and it may
be found necessary to exchange it
for a Daimler before commencing
trial trips. Then there is the problem of securing sufficient steel bottles for the gas which has to be
transported to the Cape de Verde
Islands. The German companies who
have been asked to supply the thousand metal bottles have not enough
in hand to be able willingly to let
them go so far afield; hence a considerable number of them must be
bought right off, which involves a
heavy initial expense,
Lastly, trial trips can only he undertaken when the weal her in tlie
bay of Kiel and neighborhood can
absolutely be guaranteed for at least
three hours. A telegram from the
Hamburg observatory to this effect
will be the signal for the first start.
Regarding the details of construction Mr. Brucker explained that the
(intent spraying apparatus is working tiuite smoothly, and has been
proved very effective against expansion of gas under the sun's rays.
The mechanism is very simple, consisting of a small hand-pump, rather
like the oil pump of a motor car,
which drives a thin stream of water
up a half-inch hose to the ridge of
ihe balloon, where the water is distributed in a very fine spray, just
sufficient to cool off the surface of
the triple skin.
The water Ib drawn up from the
sea by means of a rope carrying two
"buckets," which are really egg-
ihaped hollow spheres, having two
small eyes or openings near the lop.
When let down  into  the water the
spheres fill gradually through these
eyes. When the buckets are full
the total pull on the rope at any
speed the vessel is likely to travel
is about 70 kilos, as tested from a
Btaemer in the Kiel bay and in the
rapid Isar at Munich. The water
supply thus obtained enables the
aeronauts to adjust their balloons to
some extent at will.
The motor boat which forms the
car of the balloon is fitted with a
boat's screw at the stern, as well as
with the two side air screws, which
are c.o give the balloon a speed under her own power of about 14 English miles per hour.
"The average velocity of the
northeast trade wind," said Mr.
Brucker, "is about seven metres per
second, and the vessel's own speed
will be roughly the same, which
gives a total speed when necessary
of about 28 English miles per hour.
"With regard to plans," concluded Mr. Brucker, "in ease of accident,
the motor boat can be released from
the balloon with not much more than
one turn of the wrist on an apparatus specially designed for the purpose. This apparatus has only just
been added, and considerably increases the weight we have to carry, so that a further adjustment is
necessary, but of course it enormously adds to our security.
"Further, the motor boat is so
constructed aB to be non-capslzable,
and being fitted With air-tight eom-
partments is more or less unslnka-
lile. We carry 2,000 litres of gasoline in tanks tinder the pressure of
carbonic add gas. Tlie gas fills the
tanks as rapidly as they are exhausted of gasoline, nnd thus rentiers explosion from air practically Impossl-

HEALTH CONFERENCE
French Government Proposes Internationa] Gathering to Consider
Safety of the Public
The French government has Issued invitations to the governments
of the various European and American states to participate in an International Health conference to be
held in Paris during the month of
May. The convocation of the conferences has been decided upon in consequence of the epidemics of cholera
and of plague and In view of the fact
that seven years have passed since
the meeting of the last health conference, when the disease which
came  more  especially   under  discuB-
sion were plague and yellow fever.
The aim of the conference is to
adapt to ne wneeds the most recent
improvements and discoveries without departing from the programme,
which according to the explanatory
note issued by the government, aims
at securing "the maximum of security with the minimum of regulations."
In order to facilitate the work of
the conference the basis of the discussion is to be prepared by the
permanent committee of the International office of public health,
which was founded in Paris in 1907.
The committee will meet under the
presidency of Professor Santoliquido
and the results arrived at will be
communicated to the governments
which have been invited to take paj't
in the conference.

NEW YORK FOR HIM
Mr.   Service  Writes   "Finis"   to  His
Interesting Tales of
- the Yukon
Robert W. Service, like so many
other brilliant Canadians who have
found the key to' the Temple of
Fame, has become a resident of the
American Republic, and now writes
New York City as his home. The
well-known poet-author of the Yukon has severed his connection with
the Canadian Bank of Commerce
and will berafter devote himself to
literature with a great big capital
"I.," and to play writing, in which ho
is al  present engaged.
"There will be no more talk about
the Yukon from me." said be, In a
recent interview, "there is not the
same material to be got up there
now. My last book of the desolate
North has been written, and now I
will turn my endeavors to other
places. I manage to pick up copy
everywhere I go for it."
Mr, Service was a guest in the National Arts Club in New York City
when David Graham Phillips met his
death. The poet of the Yukon
beard the shots fired by Goldsbor-
ottgh, and was one of the first on
the scene after the shooting. The
unfortunate author had been one of
his personal friends.

YUKON JUDGES
Permission to He Given for Two of
Them  to Live Outside
the Territory ,
Judge Craig is in receipt of a letter from Ottawa from Judge Macau-
lay, saying that the minister of justice has agreed to a plan whereby
two of the present Yukon territorial
judges will be granted Indefinite
leave of absence from the territory,
which will permit them to establish
homes outside, says the Dawson
News. Tlie arrangement will have
the effect of relieving the two judges
from duty, almost, If not all, the
time. They will be subject to call
for duty in Yukon. Details of the
arrangement may arrive in the next
mall.
Judge Craig says that perhaps a
plan will be devised whereby the two
senior judges will return each summer to hold a session of the appeal
court. It is thought likely that the
salary will remain the same as now,
$5,000 a year, but that the living allowance of $5,000 will be deducted.
Judge Dugas and Judge Craig, being
the senior judges, will have the
choice In order named of thus taking
advantage of the new plan. Should
one of them not care to accept,
Judge Macaulay will have the opportunity.
Notice is hereby given the the
reserve existing by reason of the
notice published, in the British Columbia Gazette of the 27th December, 1907, over lands on Graham Island, formerly covered by Timber
Licences Nos. Nos. 37055, 37056 and
37057, which expired on the 6th day
of November, 1909, and the lands
embraced within Timber Licence No.
37059, which expired on the 25th
day of January, 1909, is cancelled,
and that the said lands will be open
for pre-emption only under the provisions of Section 7 of the "Land
Act" after midnight on June 16th,

LAMENTABLE OCCURRENCE
Under British rule a very wide
llbc rty is extended to all in the matter of nct.icu,s or the expression of
opinions. It Is sometimes urged thai
n-e, us ;i people, are too lenient In
r.his respect. The freedom of the
cnbjec t and even of thos,. «ho are
not citizens bul who come to dwelt
In Hie country, is the fullest.
Thrn are limits, however, beyond
ivliuli it is not well to go. While we
may be lenient up to a certain limit
there is a limit, and when that Is
passed  Britisii law is relentless.
This cannot be too fully impressed
upon those who come to dwell on
rliis soil. They are under the fullest
protection, but they must keep within bounds.
The occurrences of yesterday are
lamentable. It is but natural for
every one at this time to tell exactly
how it could have been avoided.
There have been indiscreet things
said and done without a question.
The authorities have had their hand
on the lever, however, all along and
there Is no uncertainty as to the
final result. Law and order must
prevail.
This is no time for discussing the
ethical questions involved. It is a
time for seeing that tlie law is respected. In short it is a time for
standing, right in line with Chiet
Vickers, who is in control and whom
we are thankful to feel every citizen
can rely upon to do his duty fearlessly, impartially and with discretion.

An interesting report lias just
been made to Hon. Mr. Taylor, provincial minister of public works and
railways, by that veteran prospector
and timber cruiser, D. D. McPhall,
whb has presented in concise form
the results of his personal observation and intimate knowledge of the
eountry comprising the valleys of
Stuart river and lake, Tatclier river,
Trembleur lake, Middle river, North
Tacla lake and Driftwood river—in
fact of all that long navigable waterway stretching north from a point
Jti tlie line of the Grand Trunk Pacific opposite the mouth of the Stuart river to approximately fifteen
miles up Driftwood river, a distance altogether of aboul two hundred miles, all of which country
will be tributary to the line of the
Grand Trunk Pacific when completed and thus supplied from Prince
Rupert.
Throughout a partion of this distance, or between the mouth of Stuart river and Trembleur lake, the
land has been surveyed to the extent
of about two hundred thousand
acres, with probably as much more
"blocked out" for future surveys.
From Trembleur lake nortli to
Driftwood river and Including the
lower valley of tlie latter stream,
250,000 acres would be a conservative estimate of the arable land, so
that to say there is BOO.OOiyicres of
ieslrable land suitable for settle-
mint adjacent to these waters and
lakes would, in Mr. McPhall's opinion, be a reasonable estimate. This
land, he states, will oompare most
favorably with that of other sec-lions
of the same district containing large
areas, such as the Nechaco and the
Bulkley valley.
Referring more particularly to
navigation, Mr. McPhail reports that
when this water-stretch is spoken of
as navigable, it may lie said that a
steamer was in early days taken
through to Tacla lake—the hull is
now to be seen on Trembleur,lake—■
and very recently steamers have
gone through from Fort George to
the first of the canyons on the Stuart river. From the viewpoint of
commercial facility, however, the
adoption of this waterway as a transportation route Is said to be contingent upon works of Improvement
heing carried out at various points.
These, going north, and their approximate cost would be:
On the Stuart river,    first    aboul
five miles above the mouth or junction of the Nechaco river at Chlnlac,
there is a widening of the river and
rapids. The trouble here is lack of
water and the remedy prescribed,
confining the chsnnel, which work
would require the construction of
two wing dams and tlie removal of
a number of boulders, at a cost of
approximately    $10,000. Again,
above Chinlac for about twelve
miles, swift water prevails, requiring
the removal of boulders in places
and the provision of one wing dam
about ten miles from the river
mouth, which would cost about $5,-
000, For the next thirty-eight
and a hair miles tlie Stuart is a slow-
flowing, "even" river, a beautiful
Btreara traversing a fine country,
: lore especially to the eaBt. At fifty-
five and a half miles from the mouth
i here is a short canyon with aliund-
.. e of water! but requiring the re-
oval of boulders at a cosl ol
$2,000. This is the last obstacle,
Stuarl lake being entered about
ifty.i ighl   miles  from   its  mouth,
Tatclier river, fifteen and a half
miles in length, although smaller
than the Stuart, runs plenty of water for small steamers. Improvements are required to provide sale-
navigation al two points. The difficulties are short rapids and would
be very simply eliminated by the removal of the boulders. The first of
these rapids occurs about two and a
half miles from Stuart lake, and the
second about ten and a half miles
from that body of water, expenditures of $5,000 and $2,000 being
necessitated.
.Middle river, connecting Trembleur and Tacla lakes, with a length
of approximately twenty miles, is an
easy-flowing stream, upon which no
improvements are requisite. Driftwood river is navigable for about
four miles in which distance no improvements are necessary beyond the
cutting out of a long jamb about
one and a half miles from Nortli
Tacla lake.
It was thought last year by those
engaged on the project, that steamboat communication could lie maintained between Fort George and
Stuart lake, and that experiments
proved a failure, should not be considered detrimental to the ultimate
use of this waterway as a most advantageous factor in settling tlie
lands adjacent to it. Mr. McPhail
does not think that the difference in
elevation between the mouths of the
Stuart and the Driftwood river will
reach one hundred feet, and it is his
opinion further that this route could
be made easily available for five
months in Hie year with a nominal
expenditure.
There is at present a wagon road
constructed from .Milne's Landing on
the Nechaco river to within a few
miles of Stuart lake, communication
with Fort St. James, across the Stuart river, being secured by Indian
ferry. An extension of this road
northerly would undoubtedly cross
the Stuart river by a bridge at the
"Little Canyon," one mile below the
/.rke, the present ferry being a long
one worked with oars and poles.
Thence tlie road would follow generally the route taken by the old Omineca or Manson creek trail. In
Mr. McPhall's opinion, owing to its
advantageous position along the waterways just described, the adjacent
land will be rapidly settled. There
would, however, be required some
means of communication otherwise,
during the winter, and more especially during the spring and late autumn months. This, he thinks, would
best be provided by uiverttng tlie
road from the old Omineca trail before reaching Tezzeron lake. This
road wolud traverse a good country
and give access, with short branches
to Ihe lake and river settlements.
Lying In Ihe north of such a line
of communication is the Nation lake
and river country In waic-li, according to Mr. McPhail, exploration will
disclose the existence of excellent
areas. An extension of the road
trom sinne point further south as
may be found expedient, Into this
region and cventunlly to the Peace
river,  is only a question  of time.
"it occurs in my vocation in this
province," says Mr. McPhail in conclusion, "to travel considerably over
the trails in the first instance, and
the wagon roads which are rapidly
taking their place, and It Is a source
of satisfaction to me to be In a position Io testify to the care apparent
in the location of those latter and
Ihe good work put In upon them.
The north country especially Is yet
to be made. It Is a land of grand
distances. Your policy of providing
reasonably good communication
throughout a» comparatively unknown country will be abundantly
justified In the response of home-
seekers when shown the way before
the advancement of what will he one
of the province's greatest districts,
and an everlasting source of satisfaction    to    those   who    dictated   it.    I

CABINET  CHANGES
Rumored   That   Hon.   Mr.   Lenileux
May Take Marine ami Fisheries  Dcnni'tnient
The Montreal Gazette announces
inside political circles had it that, Mr.
Lemieux, the postmaster-general,
will be called to the portfolio of marine and fisheries to replace his colleague, Mr. Brodeur, whose promotion to the supreme court bench is
said to be only a question of time.
Those who know say Mr. Lemieux is
well satisfied with his present portfolio and is by no means an applicant for the. important portfolio to
lie so soon vacated by the member
for Rouville, but Sir Wilfrid Laurier
has decreed that the postmaster-general is the proper man to assume the
portfolio of marine and fisheries.
It is said the prime minister considers Mr. Lemieux has ueen a pronounced success as head of the postal department, and wants to give
him an opportunity to gather new
laurels at the department of marine.
In fact the statement was made today that the present postmaster-
general really wanted to stay with
his present portfolio, but owing to
the will of the leader of the administration he will accept the other,
which is, as a matter of fact, the
more important department, and its
acceptance by the member for Gaspe
nothing more nor less than a considerable promotion,

that they preferred to move from
the coast to the prairies. It was a
matter of getting a location to suit.
His Honor, when he referred to
the remarkable development going
on on the prairies, was perfectly at
home. It has its interest for Prince
Rupert, however, because from that
vast territory the trade that is to
flow through here will in no small
measure be drawn.
This year Mr. Brown says he expects to see a million acres of virgin land brought under cultivation
in Saskatchewan. Every year sees
advances in tbe line of agriculture
and the extension of the area. At
least seven hundred or eight hundred plows driven by gasoline motors will be sol dthis year, he expects. This system is taking tlie
place of the horse plows because
horses have become too expensive
for tlie purpose, .Mr. Brown himself
is plowing 2,000 acres by this system. In Hie matter of production It
was with pride that tlie governor
Of Saskatchewan referred lo the fact
that his province produced more
wheat, more oats and other cereals
than any other of tlie prairie provinces. In cattle, also, it leads tlie others while many farmers were making a competency out of flax production with the high price derived
for flax seed.
The members of the Saskatchewan
party promise that it will not be
long before they find another excuse
for a trip up the coast. They were
loud In praise of the treatment accorded them on the Prince Rupert
and of the kindness of Captain Nicholson and Captain Barney Johnson,
the skipper.

HOUSTON
The New Town on tbe Main Line of
the Grand Trunk Pacific
HOUSTON Is the centre and distributing point for one of the richest
and most diversified districts of
British Columbia.
HOUSTON is only a short distance
from the Babine Lake district,
which is wonderfully rich in minerals.
HOUSTON adjoins the first piece of
land taken up in the Bulkley Valley when land was cheap and
easily obtainable, and part of the
land which is now the TOWN OF
HOUSTON has been under cultivation for six years. The main
line of the GRAND TRUNK PACIFIC has a'ready been surveyed
through the town, and the location of that survey can be seen on
the map of the Townsite.

SALVAGE SCHEME.
Silver bars, gold and money,
amounting to well over a million
pounds, are believed to have been
le ited witli the wreck of H. M. S.
Lutinc, which has lain for nearly a
century and a Quarter at ihe bottom
of the sea. The Liitine loft Yarmouth Roads for Hamburg on October II, 1799, and went clown either
the same day or the following morning, between the Island of Vile and
Terscbelling off one of Ihe entrances
to the Zuyder Zee. According to authentic records she carried gold and
sliver bullion and money amounting
to £1,207,000. Of this amount
£900,000 was insured at Lloyds,
£160,000 at Hamburg, and £147,000
was not Insured. The latter amount
was cash, and was for payment of
British troopB in Holland. In 1800
salvage operations were carried on,
and recovery was made of £88,578,
which adde to various small sums
rescued at later dates makes a total
of £100,824 recovered up to date,
leavin ga balance of £1,106,176 still
lying in the hold of the vessel.
In view of the great improvement
that has been made in salvage apparatus during the past few years,
hope has been revived that a large

still be secured. Last year the National Salvage Company decided to
send their steamer Lyons, in command of Captain Gardener, a man of
large salvage experience, to remove
from the Loutlne, the sand and mud
which has accumulated about her.
In January with unfavorable conditions,  In    eight and a half    hours'
work, the Lyons raised two small
cannon, two Iron bolts, some timber and nails and two ribB of a man.
Captain Gardener now asserts confidently, with favorable weather a
vessel like the Lyons can salve at
least one-third of the sunken treasure, or more than a mil'ion and a
half dollars.    She Is a craft of 494
tons, and is capable of clearing 2,000
tons of sand an i.our. Tlie thirty
feet of bottom which have been accumulating over'the hulk for 112
years, will soon be pumped away, It
is believed, and all that will remain
to be done will be to send down
divers to reap the golden harvest.

ton-Sunrise Development
Work
The Platlnum-Oold Fields, Limited, of Vancouver, which has some
twenty miles of the Similkanieen and
Tulameen rivers on lease from the
government, after it very thorough
test of the auriferous ground at the
forks of the rivets here and In the
vicinity have ceased drilling, and the
machine is being stored nutil required after high  water.
About forty drill holes were sunk
resulting in such satisfactory returns
that will warrant the construction of
a dredge for the purpose of recovering the platinum now known to be
in the bars and alluvial deposits generally within the lease areas of the
rivers. While there is a dearth of
detailed information for publication,
enough is known to verify the statement that values are satisfactory for
dredging purposes. The drill affords
absolutely reliable data from which
to base average values and thus reduce placer mining by machinery to
a science even more accurate than
by the primitive hand process.
Tne drill has demonstrated that
bedrock is deeper than supposed,
probably twelve feet around the
forks,. In any case the pay dirt
with scientific treatment in a modern dredge will be found to be more
extensive than suspected by oldtime
placermen who had not the appliances for testing at depth.
A beginning has now been made
in what is not unlikely to become a
great industry. In other coutries,
particularly New Zealand and California, vast capital is invested in
gold dredging, hundreds of machines
costing from $30,000 to $100,000
being operated in this permanent
profitable industry. The area of
dredgable ground in Princeton district can only be, even aproximalely
estimated, but lying within the river
banks there are several hundred
acres. If the bottoms and benches
are included many times more acres
will be added, In ail an area large
enough for the founding of a practically permanent industry. There is
also Granite Creek and a number of
other auriferous streams which
could be worked.
In the early placer days the rivers
and creeks were skimmed over in the
rush for big pay. Platinum, or
"white gold," was then a drug, it
having been bought as low as 50
cents and $2 an ounce. Miners
wasted it in their quest for the more
valuable gold. Now, however, platinum is worth $38 an ounce and
there is no doubt it will be the chief
value obtained by dreagers on the
upper Tulameen and its tributaries.
Plalilium in place has not been
found in commercial quantities as
yet, but the Dominion geologist is
each summer trying to solve Its hidden location, believed to be in the
vicinity of Champion, Slate, Eagle
and Kelly Creeks.
Tbe British Columbia Drilling and
Dredging Company, of Vancouver,
has the contract for all the drilling
required, the management on the
ground being entrusted to Mr. F.
Satchel! Clarke, M, E., who has bad
large experience in gold dredging in
New Zealand, California and British
Columbia. II.- built the Cobbledlck
and North Thompson dredgeB and
was similarly employed In Atlln nnd
the Yukon. The company retains
Mr. Clarke as consulting engineer.
Tlie Platinum Cold Fields, Limited, of Vancouver, Is composed of
placer mining men, of which Mr.
J. F. Tener, M. ED., is consulting engineer. He has been here superintending tlie experimental work, the
result of which is so satisfactory
that a dredge will be built ad operated at or near the forks of the rivers. It is xpected that a dredge will
be completed before tlie end of the
year, and upon its success will depend the construction of several
others.
. o	
The management of the Sliver Cup
Mines, whose properties are situated
near Hazelton, has appointed James
Faulds to take charge of the works
this summer. Mr. Faulds is well
known on the coast as a capable
manager, lie lias had experience in
Alaska and elsewhere and the management of Ihe Silver Cup consider
that they have been fortunate in securing him for the position.
In addition to managing the Silver
Cup, he will also take charge of the
Hazelton-Sunrise group of properties
which is close to the Silver Cup
Mine. Many of the same men are
interested in the two companies and
it is felt that the two can be more
economically operated this summer
under  one  management.
Tlie intention is to fully develop
these properties this summer so as
to be in position to ship steadily as
soon as the railway reaches the
wliere connection can be given with
the mines. The Grand Trunk Pacific
are agreeable to building a spur to
the properties as soon as the main
line is far enough advanced, which
is an assurance that the properties
are past the experimental stage and
are looked upon as permanent producers.

A stout old gentleman was having
trouble witli the telephone. He
could hear nothing but a confused
Jumble of sounds, and finally he became so exasperated that he shouted
into the transmitter:
"Is there a blithering fool at the
end of this line?"
"Not at this end," answered a
cool, feminine voice.
Dr. L. Sugden started for his
home on Kluane Lake with a stock
of provisions sufficient to last him
some time in the line of operating
his mining property on Bullion, says
the  Whitehorse Star.
Sugden has almost a mile of Bullion creek and will engage extensively in hydraulic mining the coming season. He has thoroughly
prospected the ground in past seasons and knows just where to work
to get the best results. He expects
to work double shifts, thus getting
all there is to be gotten out of the
short season.
Alex Fisher accompanied Sugden

camps, when the outfits are put to
work on the grade. This number at
least will be used by the Canadian
Northern west of Edmonton, while
as many more will be required in the
Canadian Northern camps in British Columbia.
Many of the men will be brought
from Eastern Canada, and there will
be employment for all who want
such work, when the construction is
well under way.

NO DOCTOR'S BILLS IN JAPAN
The much-talked of negro colony
from Oklahoma for the Edmonton
district, have arrived In the city, says
the Edmonton Capital. Heralded
throughout the entire journey, with
more widespread publicity than they
wolud have received had they been
the latest tiling in minstrel shows,
with a live advance man, the party
of 175 took the immigration hall by
storm and have been atracting much
attention as tlie betteur dressed of
the party paraded the streets.
There are nearly 100 heads of
families in the party, and they have
enough money to pay the way for
themselvens and for seven cars of
effects and nve stock all the way
from Oklahoma, with plenty left
over to give them a good start on
the farms that they will take up near
Athabasca Landing.
The seven cars of effects will
reach the city in a day or two.
The men of the party feel quite
proud over the fact that they overcame the strong opposition of the
■immigration authorities at the border, where the party were held up
for two days and a night, while the
officials tried to trump up some
charge against them to send them
packing back to Oklahoma.
Daddy Snald, who spiend out the
land up here last summer for this
colony, is the bearded patriarch of
the party, and the bunch of blacks
that he is leading into the promised
land are a healthy looking lot.
The men are strong aud healthy,
the hall full of rolling tumbling piccaninnies who look a promising generation.
Old Daddy Snaid is a wise scout,
and It.was mostly due to his wiles
that the party safel ycrossed the border.
"There ain't nothin' the matter
with us, mister," he told a reporter.
"Sick? Ah'd like youh to show me
whar we have any sick peoples.
"We are goin' to take up homesteads near Athabasca Landin' as
soon as our effects arrive. We have
all our implements and horses and
wagons, and we're goin' in for farm-
in' straight. All of our men has
farmed all their lives."
"How do you like this country?"
asked the reporter of the girl who
was evidently the belle of the party,
a lithe, graceful female with plumed
hat, glossy fur coat and vari-colored
gown. "Ah likes it jest fine, so far,"
she said with a flashing smile, and a
rolling of her eyes. "Ah thinks it's
great, it's a lot warmer than we
thought it 'ud be."
The new settlers are mild looking
humans, with expansive smiles and
sunny countenances. The majority
of them are well dressed, and have
money, and a more contented lot of
people could not be found.
In the Flowery Kingdom the Poor
Patient Is Immune from Danger of Being Asked for Fees
PLENTY   OF   MEN
G. T.  P.  Have Abundant Supply on
the Mountain Section of
tlie Railway Lines
Nearly three hundred sturdy
youths from Ontario farms are waiting to come to Edmonton to seek
employment on railway construction,
according to Chief Publicity Officer
Commissioner Hotchkiss, of Edmonton, says the Capital. The Alberta
publicity offices In Toronto have
been flooded with requests from
these men to be taken west to work
on railway construction, They have
heard that there Is work for hundreds of men In the railway camps.
All these unci many hundreds
more will be required this summer
in Edmonton for railway construction work. But Hie railway companies will not furnish them with
transportation east of Winnipeg,
and If the sturdy Ontario youths are
anxious to see life in Alberta railway
camps, it will be necessary for them
to pay their own fare to Winnipeg,
from where the railway contractors
will bring them free of-charge.
No more men will be required at
present in the Grand Trunk Pacific
construction camps-west of the city,
according to the local agents of
Foley, Welch and Stewart. Over
2,000 men are now working on the
grade In the mountains, and this
number is sufficient to push the
work through the pass this summer.
It is not likely that more gangs will
be put on at present.
The Canadian Northern Railway,
who have not yet opened up construction work for the season, will
require at least 2,000 men for their
A Japanese doctor never dreams
of asking a poor patient for a fee.
There is a proverb among the medical fraternity of Japan that says,
"When the twin enemies, poverty
and disease, invade a home, then he
who takes aught from that home,
even if it be given him, is a robber."
"Often," remarked a recent lecturer on life in Japan, "a doctor
will not only give his time and medicine free to the sufferer, but he will
also give him money to tide over his
dire necessities. Every physician Is
his own dispenser, and there are
very few apothecaries' shops In the
empire.
"When even a rich man calls In
a doctor he does not expect that he
will receive a bill for medical services; in fact, no such thing as a doctor's bill is known in Japan, although nearly all modern practices
are In vogue there. The strict honesty of the people does not make it
necessary for the doctor to ask a fee.
When he has finished his visits to
the patient a present is made to him,
just as much as the patient can afford. The doctor smiles, bows,
thanks his patient, and the transaction is at an end."

RACING WITH RAILS
G.T.P. and Canadian Northern Railways
are Both Making Fast
Time.
Speculation About    Edmonton   as (o
Plans of Bach of the
Companies
The great Canadian transcontinental railways, each battling
against time to complete their systems west from Edmonton through
the Rockies to the Pacific coast, will,
during the next two years, be pitted
against each \ither in one of the
greatest railway races in the history
of railway construction in Western
Canada, a race to secure first connection with tide water on the Pacific,  says the  Edmonton  Capital.
Two years ago the Grand Trunk
Pacific and the Canadian Northern
were battling for primary location of
route through tlie Yellowhead Pass
in the Rockies. The Grand Trunk
Pacific won out. but the year following the Canadian Northern Railway
beat the Grand Trunk to it, .in a race
for location or route down the North
Thompson into Vancouver.
Now, with tlie Canadian Northern
building to Vancouver, via tbe Nortli
Thompson, and the Grand Trunk Pacific heading for its terminals at
Prince Rupert, via Fort George, botli
railways are plunged into a keen
race for the first completed grade
through  to Ihe Pacific.
Edmonton is the base of this race.
West of this city, tlie Grand Trunk
Pacific have 200 miles of grade completed. The Canadian Northern
Railway have but 40. From tbe
Pacific end the Grand Trunk Pacific
have 150 miles completed. The Canadian Northern have but 70. Yet.
with this apparent advantage to the
Grand Trunk Pacific the race is
shaping in such a manner now as
to indicate that the Canadian Northern will be the winner in the spectacular race through the Rockies.
The Canadian Northern have tlie
advantage or unlimited British capital at their disposal. The Canadian
Northern, too, has played a shrewd
game. For two years they have allowed tlie construction of their main
line west of Edmonton to drop. Now,
with the- Grand Trunk Pacific rails
laid within a lew miles of their
proposed route, almost parallel for
the whole distance west to the moun
tains, and with the advantage of being able to ship in supplies and outfits by rail right to the very doors
of their construction camps, the Canadian Northern will concentrate
their greatest construction efforts on
the undertaking of rushing their
main line through. The Grand
Trunk Pacific will lay down supplies for them in their camps. The
Grand Trunk Pacific engines will
haul the construction outfits west,
and set them down at any desired
point close to the Canadian Northern
grade. The Grand Trunk Pacific
passenger trains will bring into the
Canadian Northern Railway camps
the thousands of laborers they require. In fact, the Canadian Northern have cleverly contrived to make

.Forty-two thousand immigrants passed through for the
year ending March  31.
the Grand Trunk Pacific, their competitor in the race, a big factor in
helping them to win the race.
. .\ioreover, the Canadian Northern
now aroused to activity, will undertake to do what, they, or any other
railway, have never before accomplished. They will undertake to
complete, ready for the steel, exclusive of bridges, 400 miles of main
line grade every year until their line
is completed to the coast. The Grand
Trunk Pacific are building their line
in 100 mile slretclies. Tbe Canadian
Northern will build theirs in 200
mile stretches, building 200 miles
from each end of the line.

Enthusiastic .Meeting Held at Hazel.
ton When Officers Were Elected for the New Year
There was an enthusiastic gathering on the occasion of tlie annual
meeting of the Hazelton Rifle Association. This organization began a
year ago, and lias proved very popular, and closed a most successful
year with a membership of fifty-two,
which will be largely increased during the coming season.
Owing to the heavy initial expanse
the financial statement showed a
small deficit, but measures will be
taken to replenish the treasury without increasing the annual subscription.
Major R. F. Leslie, captain of the
association, was re-elected by acclamation. A. R. Macdonald was chosen vice-captain, in succession . to
Chief Maitland-Dougall, who will
shortly leave the district to accept
the office of government agent in
Cowichan. H. W. Sharpe, the energetic secretary-treasurer, was unanimously re-elected. J. C. Boyd and
G. O. Graham were elected members
of the executive committee.
Arrangements for .the season's
shooting, including plans for improvements to the range, will be
taken in hand at once.
